Designer Caroline McCall makes gown entirely out of Chocolate
London, Oct 14 : Downton Abbey's costume designer Caroline McCall has made a chocolate dress by using nine stone of milk, dark and white chocolate.
The gown, which is strapless with a fitted bodice and elegant tulip-shaped skirt made from leaves in varying shades of brown, pale green and chestnut, is made from more than 60kg of Lindt Excellence chocolate, Metro. co. uk reported.
McCall created a template of the handcrafted "Deco Diamond" dress using material and then food artist Paul Wayne Gregory recreated parts of the gown in chocolate and sprayed other parts with the chocolate, coating the entire thing in the sweet stuff.
The Lindt's master chocolatier Stefan Bruderer said that from the first sketches that took inspiration from such a timeless period of decadence, they knew they had the makings of an exquisite design combining the high fashion and gastronomy.
The dress that was created in three months will be unveiled at the Chocolate Show on October 16, 2014. (ANI)
